Collagen is a biopolymer substance, known as Collagen in English, that plays a role in binding tissue in animal cells. As one of the most critical raw materials in the biotechnology industry, it is also the best biomedical material in huge demand. Its application fields include biomedical materials, cosmetics, food industry, research applications, etc.
Collagen is an extracellular protein that is a fibrous protein formed by twisting three peptide chains. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Dr. Brandt, the father of collagen in the world, asserted that "the process of human aging is the process of collagen loss!" Collagen accounts for more than 30% of the total body protein.
Collagen is rich in amino acids such as glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. Collagen is the most important component of extracellular matrix.
Having said so much, you still don't understand? Simply put, the tissues in the flexible and supportive parts of your body are almost all collagen.
For example, the most common female face that loves beauty is supported by collagen, cartilage, eyes, muscles, breast support structures, and so on. As long as it requires support or has flexibility, it almost contains collagen. Do you understand?
Here are some information about the role and efficacy of collagen
Collagen and hair: The key to healthy hair is the nutrition of the subcutaneous tissue of the scalp, which is the foundation of hair. Collagen in the dermis is the nutritional supply station for the epidermis and epidermal appendages, which are mainly hair and nails. Lack of collagen, dry and bifurcated hair, easily broken nails, dark and dark, so why is collagen also becoming a hot spot when the post 90s are preventing hair loss.
The role and efficacy of collagen II:.
Collagen and bone: 70% - 80% of the organic matter in bone is collagen. In particular, in the cartilage part, many people believe that the elderly or children only need to supplement calcium alone for calcium deficiency, but they do not want to use calcium containing collagen. It leads to poor growth in children and increasingly severe joint wear in the elderly. During bone formation, sufficient collagen fibers must be synthesized to form the skeleton of the bone. Therefore, some people refer to collagen as bone in bone. Collagen fibers have strong toughness and elasticity. If a long bone is compared to a concrete column, then collagen fibers are the steel frame of the column, and the lack of collagen fibers is like using inferior steel bars in buildings, with the imminent danger of breakage.
